Hurray for the 17th May!

Today is Norway's National Day. Yeay. It celebrates the 1814 signing of the constitution that declared Norway to be an independent nation. (Should you wish to learn more, and I am sure you do, please do go to this informative Wikipedia article).

Anyway, it is a big day here - so hurrah for parades, sausages and national dress.

Yep, EVERYONE dresses up. 

This is my littlest stepson from a couple of years ago - all the schools meet up and walk with their classes. (Oh and let's not tell him I'm using this picture...).

Oh, and they let their gingers dress up and have a flag.

Yeay Norway!
